Predictably, the crowd turned as one to examine the signs of trollopdom, the first interest shown Roberta all evening.
Within a half hour, Roberta made several important decisions. She wanted a husband who would never, under any circumstances, make a public display of himself or those around him. And he should know nothing of poetry. Second, her only chance of finding that husband was to make her way to London without her father or Mrs. She would go there, pick an appropriate gentleman and arrange to marry him.
She returned to her seat in the corner with renewed interest and began surveying the company for the appropriate characteristics. It was the most exquisite garment she had ever seen. The man was tall and moved with the careless grace of an athlete. He wore no wig, unlike the other perspiring gentlemen pacing through the dance. His hair was a rumpled black, shot with two or three brilliant streaks of white, and tied at his neck with a pale green ribbon. He was a dangerous mixture of carelessness and supreme elegance. The footman handed her a glass in order to disguise the fact they were speaking.
He plays chess. And it seems no one knows you here. The room was crowded with laughing, dancing peers. No one had paid any attention to her, or even spoken to her in over an hour. Her papa had wandered off again with Mrs. At least that way you can have a dance!
For the first time all evening, young men bowed before her. She invented an irascible mistress and had great fun describing her tribulations dressing her. Finally, she realized that there was a remote possibility that her father would miss her, and she headed back to the ball. Then she realized there was also the possibility that he would have forgotten about her and left for the inn.
He stared at her from the ground, with eyes as cold as spring rainfall. She blushed and dropped a curtsy, dazed by the pure raw masculinity of him, by his hollowed cheeks and jaded look. He was everything that her father was not. A man like that would never embarrass himself. Life with her father had taught her to be blunt about her own emotions, or risk having them dissected by a poet. So she knew instantly what it was she felt: lust. He stood and then tipped up her chin. Roberta felt a thrill of triumph. The lust was mutual. A deep ruby for a lower lip. I could paint you in water colors.
He raised an eyebrow. I fear I misjudged your station. His eyes skittered over the plain laced front of her gown, with its misshapen pleats that looked as if she had fashioned them herself. He dropped his hand. I would have you without delay if you had but a few pennies to your name, my dear, but even I have a few paltry morals. Foibles, really. She meant that he was assuming she was poor, although the supposition was fair enough, given her clothing.
But he jumped to the more obvious meaning. As he made a leg before her, she watched the skirts of his coat fall into perfect pleats. And its black embroidery, on close inspection, was mulberry-colored. It was an exquisite combination. Enough to change her mind entirely. What she felt was entirely too deep for a flimsy emotion such as lust. For the first time in her life. These etchings were no more accurate than those of two year earlier. How could you not, given the fact that Mrs.
Grope and myself make such frequent appearances in Town and Country? Someone made a pretty penny from your folly. And then wrinkled her nose. No more poetry. April 10, Beaumont House, Kensington.

Being able to look within yourself with compassion and wisdom will allow you to understand your emotions to create a healing mechanism for your conflicts. The healing work begins by taking care of fear and guilt, two very important feelings for growth, when you learn what they want to teach.

For this, you need to develop the ability to put yourself in other's shoes and live well with the differences, without wanting, arrogantly, that people are the way you think they should be.
Even if you do not agree with the singularity of the other, it is your duty to proceed with unalterable respect for differences, at any time and place, consolidating an example of fraternal coexistence.
